Niner RKT 9 RDO Mountain Bike Frame 2016

Throwing a leg over Niner's all new RKT 9 RDO Mountain Bike Frame is a bit like traveling back in time, revisiting the halcyon days of off road cycling when geometry angles and rear travel weren't creeping continuously toward motocross measurements and they didn't need to. Niner's paraphrased goal in developing the RKT 9 RDO was to build a 90mm yes, 90mm suspension chassis that handles terrain like a five inch bike but climbs like an XC RKT err, rocket, creating a 29in platform every bit as race ready as any 27. 5in trail machine. On moderate terrain, speed is definitely the RKT's friend. It's easy to choose a gear, choose a line, and to quote the bike's top tube pedal, damn it, trusting that the suspension's surprisingly capable four inches will carry you across rock strewn trails and through corners with a quickness that we've rarely if ever experienced on 29in wheels. Given that it's an XC race bike, Niner tweaked the RKT 9 RDO's CVA travel to hit the sweet spots of low travel speed. In its initial stroke, the RKT's CVA focuses on maintaining a firm, responsive pedaling platform a theory that translates well to the trail. Even while riding the shock open, CVA encourages speed on rocky, root latticed climbs to the point that the RKT fires out of berms on the uphills with almost the same alacrity as it does on the downhills. Alacrity also describes the RKT's enthusiasm as roll overs and light rock gardens usher the travel into the mid stroke, which opens up a bit more to embrace trail furniture without sacrificing momentum or straying from its line. As it hits the end of its 90mm, the travel ramps up to avoid harsh bottom outs, extending the margin of error just a bit further for when enduro ambitions start to get the better of XC restraint. The frame is built according to the specifics of Niner's RDO Carbon Compaction System CCS. CCS uses internal molds during the curing process to ensure precise control over wall thickness and material
